Can We Agree on One Thing?

Can We Agree on One Thing?

Jan 26

We Jews are great at coming together in response to external threats. Dealing with internal divisions — well, that’s something else entirely.

Right or left, traditional or secular, Zionist or anti-Zionist (and everything in between), Jews have strong beliefs and we’re not afraid to use ‘em. But can we all stop, take a deep breath, and remember when…?

A new song, offered in the spirit of unity.  Video link here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Golden Chain (We’ll Stand Together Again) © Sandy Cash, 2014

Go and talk about history, talk about the tribe

Go and talk about the miracle that we are still alive

Go and talk about the law, talk about religion

Go and talk that talk – but don’t forget to listen

 

Some live by the rules, some follow their heart

But deep in side us is the very same spark

The fire on the mountain that we shared that day

Warms different hearts in different ways

 

CHORUS

Link to link in a golden chain

We stood together at Sinai

We’ll stand together again

 

Family ties, our sisters and brothers

Get hurt as we struggle one against the other

Bound by tradition or bound to live free

I’m a part of you, and you’re a part of me.

 

An ancient people from an ancient land

Drawing such different lines in the sand

Building walls so high they cannot be crossed

Cutting us off from all the love we’ve lost

CHORUS

We’re together on a journey this world to perfect

From the valley of suspicion to the mountain of respect

Torn apart and scattered to all four winds

Can we walk it back to where we were back then?
